Absolutely. I have had this numerous times.
It doesn't generally happen if the anxiety comes on slowly - but it happens almost every time it comes on quickly.
So it was interesting that, when I started on Effexor (low dosage), one of my side effects for a few days was the feeling that my brain was "cold". That's the only way I can describe it.
Thanks for your reply.
How long does this cold feeling last for you? Mine can go all day, on and off?
It depends. Sometimes it's only a few minutes, other times it's longer. Generally it's only as long as my anxiety lasts (or shorter). Typically that would be a couple of hours max. But if I was having anxiety numerous times a day (which is rare for me, as I usually get it in the evening, and then when it goes away I go to bed), I suppose it could go on and off all day.
Are you getting it even when you don't feel anxious anymore?
I still get this feeling even when I am not anxious anymore. I've been having it alot lately.
Thanks for your reply. What do you do when you are feeling this rush feeling.
Thanks Daisy for your encouraging words.
What do you do when you get this cold rush feeling.
I've never had the sensation when I wasn't experiencing anxiety, but I definitely think it would be possible. Anxiety does so many strange things to our bodies - during and after the height of the anxiety. I do have other physiologial symptoms that start during an anxiety attack and can continue even after it's over, so it does make a lot of sense.
All the best!
